About me and my therapy practice

I’m Helen and I work as a Person Centred Counsellor in Edinburgh. 

I offer a collaborative working relationship, the most important aspect of my job is the relationship between us; the client and therapist.

I place a high value on the experience of each individual and their reality. At the core of the Person Centred Approach lies the belief that the client is the one who knows what hurts. This arises out of a deep respect for the person, the healing nature of the therapeutic relationship and my unwavering trust in the clients ability to heal. 

I aim to provide a respectful, confidential and supportive space, as experience has taught me that in an accepting environment positive change can occur.

Practice description

I have over twenty years experience working in mental health.

I am a qualified Person Centred Supervisor and I work with Edinburgh University as a Professional Development Mentor with students on the counselling doctorate program. 

I offer a sliding fee scale from £60 - £75per hr. Clients are asked to pay what they can on this scale. 

I hold a couple of concessionary spaces £50 per hr.  

I also offer one free slot per wk to clients who may otherwise not be able to access counselling. This is not time limited work and is reviewed every three months with each client. (Currently being used).
